I love SMT, and I'm having a great time with the iOS version (Thank God it's based on the GBA version. Actually knowing what demons you'd get from fusing before you actually fuse FTW). Then again, I have no qualms with writing important stuff down, memorizing maps, and going online when I really get stuck. BTW, this version does tell you where stuff is on the map, though you have to get there, first, and I've never actually used the Mapper Spell yet. Not really sure what it even does in this version, actually. EDIT: Oh, it gives you a Mini-Map. That's neat. Though I've already gotten used to looking at the big map and simply planning my routes.

On the topic of Persona 5 becoming more casual, I hope that only applies to the gameplay and not the story. I love the gameplay in SMT, but I honestly think it's the stories that make the Persona games more appealing than games this niche reasonably should be.

...also maybe then I'd actually be able to beat it. Just saying.

I played some of Iris, and I loved it.

I played some of Rorona and I hated it.

I really need to play some of Ayesha, since it looks like the best of both worlds, but funds are currently holding me back.

Seeing as Hathen has long since beaten me to all the other songs that popped into my head, I'll just put this here:

Broken Blade /Yoshihisa Hirano - Fight against Destiny

Actually, Broken Blade has quite a bit of good music, but that's my personal favorite. Can't wait until the TV adaption comes out next month.

The Heroes
Not sure if it counts, and it's kinda the same song, but more opera-ish.

I know some guys who are gonna love this!

So I finished the Muramasa Rebirth DLC.  Well, the regular ending anyway.  I guess there are other endings to get, and you can challenge all the bosses from the original game with the new character, etc.  It only took a few hours, but I quite enjoyed it.  Honestly in a way that's a plus since it didn't drag as much as the original game.  The new character is a lot of fun to play as and the story is simpler but very well told and I actually really liked it.  This might actually be one of my favorite pieces of DLC I've ever purchased.  And it was just $5.  If you have the game then by all means get this.

That's definitely something I'm gonna do once I get up the urge to play Muramasa again.

Kuroko's Basketball is good stuff. A little weird and over the top, but enjoyable even for someone who doesn't normally enjoy the sport. Have you seen Slam Dunk?

My Crunchyroll Subscription expired, so now I'm trying to fill up my time with Legend of the Galactic Heroes. I watched some before, but I decided to start over again because I keep forgetting what episode I'm on. Up to episode 8 already, and I'm really enjoying it. The Empire is quite and interesting faction, though the best character so far is Yang from the Alliance, IMO. For a show that's been pretty serious, he's a bit of an odd duck, and utilizes such strange tactics.

But seriously, this is my 5th attempt to watch this show. Hopefully I make it into the 20s this time. Now that I've spent a whole year watching long series, maybe now I'm used to spending a lot of time on one show?

The Tonari no Seiki-kun short anime pisses me off for one single reason.
In the manga, it's mostly Yokoi's inner dialogue while in the anime she's talking and yelling (and nobody notices)
Why did they even feel the need for this change?

Probably to make it sillier. Which I think works. I love how she gets herself into more trouble than Seki ever does, just from her reactions.

Yeah, true. I'm not that fussed about the difference between screens though; I'd take the cheaper option. Good to know though! I'll keep an eye on that. Might just wait for a good deal in-store sometime.

Ahah you cant judge OLED until you see it with your own eyes. I can barely go back to my psp after experiencing such glorious quality. It feels like a cheap chinese knock off in comparison.

That and I'm pretty sure the slim won't be much cheaper. Over in Japan, it was only a 1000 yen difference when they came out...not sure if that's changed.

The side quests are a minor gripe for me. I like how they're excuted, and I like some of the little mundane stories associated with them. I just don't like having so many.

And I love the setting! It's a really creative idea and everything looks great.

And it's not so much about what I enjoyed so much as nearly every component is what I've always wanted out of games. It helps that nearly half of my top 10 games are Action-Adventure games - All I really want out of games is a visually stimulating world to explore.

More first impressions:

Witch Craft Works ep. 1 - I got desparate to pass the time and decided to watch this even though it didn't sound very good. God it made my head hurt, it was so stupid...

Hozuki no Reitetsu ep. 1 - That was...oddly pleasant. The characters were likeable enough, though I don't know much about Japanese folktales and traditions, so I'm missing a lot of references. I like how the main character is kind of a stand-up guy for once, and actually solves problems instead of causing them. The comedy kept me smiling the whole time, with a few chuckles and even a laugh or two as it went on. It's not brilliant like I had hoped, but I like it none the less. I think it'll be especially refreshing coming off of the craziness of Space Dandy.

Magical Warfare ep. 1 - So we have a main dude who is not frightened by a Girl with a Gun, not even when she's shooting at him, or a dude with a monster big sword, which he's able to fight off with a bamboo sword,
And he can kill a man and not even flinch or feel remorse.
Either this man has nerves of steel, or this show has poor writing. :P Thankfully I'm more in it for the action. Honestly, this is what I was expecting Hamatora to be...though I think I like Hamatora way more.

Pretty much Xenoblade. I'm not even kidding, when I think back to all the things I ever wanted in a game, Xenoblade fits it in almost every single way, and it does them just right, too. I think the only thing I'm missing is the nonlinear, or at least influenceable story, and to be quite honest, I don't want that anymore.

X might be even closer to what I want...since it has pilotable mechs. =P

but it also depends on what kind of hard drive you have.

I have a 320 GB Hard Drive that my Slim came with. Will that be good enough? I can't find any info on this...

I think it's more about having an SSD.

Oh...I don't have that, and a big one would cost a fortune, I think. It sounds like it might be annoying, but only on some bosses. I guess I'll leave it open as an option for now.

I figure I may as well ask: Is the PS3 version any good? I already have a copy, but I don't want to play it if it turns out it sucks and I should've waited for the PS4 version. :(

Oh hey, I acually watched some upcoming anime for once instead of forgetting about them. Guess I'll share my thoughts:

Noragami ep. 1 - this is actually a good show so far. Some decent comedy here, and the action scenes were nice, too. The story seems like it might be more focused than I expected, which is good. Definitely gonna have to see where this goes.

Space Dandy ep. 1 - pretty much what I expected: silly fun, not much else to it besides that. Still, I could use some silly fun at that hour. I'll definitely try to keep up with this...especially so I don't have to watch it on AdultSwim.com again...

Nobunaga the Fool ep. 1 - It's rediculous, and I love it. I'm getting a Code Geass vibe, it's that rediculous!

Hamatora ep. 1 - I'm not gonna lie, half the reason I watched this was because the opening featured two artists I've recently come to enjoy (livetune and the guy from Galileo Galilei). I was a little apprehensive about the actual quality of the show, but now I think it might actually be pretty good. It seems promising, and judging from the powers on display, I'm confident the battles will be entertaining if nothing else. I really like comedy so far, though, and the characters seem likeable enough. It looks like the plot starts next episode, so I'll be looking forward to that.
